The Commerce in Rubber The First 250 Years

-------

Austin Coates

This is probably one of the most comprehensive modern accounts of the trade in rubber, from its 'discovery' in South America to the explosion of planting and producing activity in Asia, particularly in Malaya and the Dutch East Indies. The history ends in the mid 1980s  with the early struggles to maintain rubber's place in the market against new synthetic versions of the product. The book was commissioned by the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce Rubber Association because Southeast Asia has been at the centre of rubber production since the 19th century. 380 pages with a bibliography, an index and 68 illustrations.
